An individual characterful detached stone-built house in the heart of this Dorset coastal village tucked away from the main road, affording 3 bed/2 bath and 2 reception accommodation with every attention to detail, with patio garden areas and dual parking space

SITUATION: Holborne Cottage is located just into Ruins Lane tucked away from the main A35 in the heart of the village of Chideock which is renowned for its great community spirit, local facilities including pubs, village hall, allotment gardens, convenience store/post office and churches. The coast at Seatown is easily reached some 15 minutes' walk away where there is an excellent restaurant and beach together with access to the South West Coastal Path.

This is a very popular location for both permanent lifestyle and holiday retreats with scenic walks including Langdon Woods (famous for its bluebells) and Golden Cap. Felicity's Farm Shop is approximately 1 mile distant and the vibrant market town of Bridport lies some 2 miles to the east and Lyme Regis some 5 miles to the west and there is a main line rail connection at Axminster some 8 miles to the west.

THE PROPERTY was a brand new individual build in 2016 of the highest quality and with attention to detail featuring mellow stone elevations and created in character style using lime plaster with a curved wall feature hallway with minstrel gate on the landing above together with a prevalence of wood throughout.

The spacious and well planned accommodation affords an entrance hall, bespoke solid-wood kitchen with dining area and utility room together with cloakroom off and a very tranquil sitting room with multi-fuel stove and two pairs of double doors opening to the outside terraces all on the ground floor. Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms with the main bedroom having an en-suite shower room and a family bathroom.

The property benefits from full mains gas-fired central heating via a combi boiler and wooden double-glazing throughout.

Outside, there is a double gravelled parking area and a terraced hard-landscaped garden ideal for ease of maintenance.

The calibre of this property will most certainly be appreciated on viewing.
